STM Armband for iPhone 6 Review
      #47660 - 02/04/15 07:23 PM

The STM Armband for iPhone 6 is a lightweight armband case for you to carry and use your phone during workout, or while jogging, biking and hiking. The armband uses flexible material and it fits iPhone 6 and other phones with up to 5.1" screens. The armband offers cutouts for the headphone jack and an extra slot for an ID, cash or keys. The STM Armband for iPhone 6 comes in three colors: blue, grey and pink.



Design

The STM Armband for iPhone 6 weighs less than an ounce yet it's strong enough to fasten your phone to your arm securely while you're running or working out. The stretchable Lycra nylon material is the same kind of fiber used in athletic clothing, stretchy jeans and swimsuits. The band is wide and it fits 11" to 15.75" diameter arms. The flexible band is also soft and doesn't cut out the circulation of your arm. The material is also moisture resistant, keeping your phone safe from sweat. The exterior of the armband has reflective pattern for night visibility.



Features

The main pocket of the STM Armband fits the iPhone 6 perfectly. You can use the iPhone 6 while it's inside the armband and the clear touch screen window works well with the phone. The back of the phone pocket has four slits: two longer ones and two shorter ones. These are for you to connect headphones to the phone while it's upside down or right side up. The phone pocket can also fit other smartphones that are in similar or smaller sizes. We tried it with several phones in various sizes, none fit as well as the iPhone 6 but it worked nonetheless. The Nokia Lumia Icon was the largest that fit in there and anything smaller, like the Sony Xperia Z3 Compact fit in the pocket easily. One thing to note though: even if the phone fits in the pocket, the armband might not have the cutout at the right location to give you access to the phone's audio jack. This is the case with the Lumia Icon as the audio jack sits right in the center on the top of the phone. You still can carry the Lumia Icon in the armband, you just can't use the audio jack. For most phones, using Bluetooth headphones can easily solve the problem. The STM Armband for iPhone 6 has another pocket behind the phone pocket, and it's smaller but big enough to store a couple of cards (IDs or credit cards), some folded cash or a couple of keys.




Conclusion

The STM Armband for iPhone 6 works well as your workout and exercise case. It's super lightweight, flexible and water resistant. It has safety features for night running or biking. The phone pocket works very well with the iPhone 6's touch screen and the back cutouts give you access to the audio jack regardless which direction you carry your phone. The extra pocket is nice for an ID or some cash. We like the color options and the price, and we only wish there were more padding around the phone.
